Always select a hairstyle that will complement your facial features for a more flattering result. Fortunately, there are popular hairstyles for every length of hair. Popular hairstyles may not be all brand-new. They still look as good now–with their updated revisions–as they did when they first made their appearance. With the many options of popular hairstyles available for you to choose from, select one that will look good on you.
Short hair is not for everyone. It is only good for certain face shapes. Short hairstyles are often at nape level, with ears either partially or fully exposed. The pixie cut, which is a popular hairstyle that has made a comeback in recent years, is ideal for anyone who has a face shape that is round, oval, heart or triangular. It does not look flattering for anyone with a square face. You also have to consider your other facial features when wearing a short hairstyle. For example, aside from the pixie cut, other popular short hairstyles, such as the crop, boyish and bowl cuts, will all make your chin more prominent. If you have wrinkles on your chin or if you are double-chinned, they will be more visible. However, for those with chiseled chins and beautifully shaped ears, eyes and eyebrows, wearing short hairstyles can highlight those areas, making them more pronounced.
If your face shape is oval, oblong, square, heart or diamond, you can opt for a medium hairstyle to complement your facial features. A slick, straight medium-length bob cut is a popular hairstyle with long fringes parted sideways, which will flatter your type of face. Opt for a formal medium bob cut with bangs, by cutting the fringes at eyebrow level and letting them fall on your forehead in a style that will complement a face shape that is oblong, oval and diamond.
Crazy layers and waves can make your medium-length hair more visually appealing, with the added depth and texture. This is an outcome made possible by a popular casual hairstyle known as medium wavy hairstyle. This particular style works best for if you have medium or fine hair and a face shape that is round, oval, heart or triangular.
If you want to keep your long locks intact, many options await you. However, beachy wave and long slick hairstyles are two that stand out when it comes to popularity. For a formal night out, keeping your hair slick and straight is a tall order. Using the right tools can make it easy to achieve. Use a ceramic flat iron to keep the frizzes at bay and to produce a smooth finish. Add styling serum to keep your hair healthy and shiny. For casual occasions, a beachy wave will do the trick. Add volumizing lotion and use large barrel curling irons for best results. Tousle your hair with mousse for a final touch. Long hairstyles are ideal for almost all face shapes.
